Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms Card in a Box

Welcome to the December Pootles Birthday Club Blog hop. It was my Aunties 80th Birthday at the beginning of December so that means I can take part in this hop. Stupidly though I forgot to take a photo of the card I made for her so here is a similar card I made for a friend who celebrated her 40th birthday earlier this year.

Botanical Blooms Card in a Box, Special Birthday Card

I absolutely love making these Card in a box cards. They are a real labour of love as they take around 8 hours to make from start to finish but they are so stunning that it's worth the effort.

Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo

For my Aunts card I used slightly different colours, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Blushing Bride with Pear Pizzazz for the leaves, so just a little more subtle than this card. 

I think the Botanical Blooms bundle is absolutely perfect for these cards as the flowers are all different sizes but look fabulous together. Unfortunately the set has now retired but I will be keeping hold of mine.

Here's close up of the flowers, don't the faceted gems look stunning as the flower centres?
